Across the Humber area, local health and care organisations are working together to improve services for local people. We are working together to find ways of getting the best from our local hospital services. To support this we are conducting a review of acute hospital services across the Humber area.
To help us in our review work, we are asking local people to tell us what’s most important to them about their local hospital services. We are also asking the public for their ideas about how to tackle some of the challenges our local health and care system is facing. We have produced an Issues Paper, which describes some of the challenges our local health and care system is facing and sets out some of the ways in which we are looking to address these.
Kate Wood, Acting Medical Director, Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust said: “It is really important for us to involve local patients in developing our plans for the future of our local hospitals. We are excited about working with our partners across the Humber area to improve services for patients and provide better, more joined-up care.”
Makani Purva, Interim Medical Director, Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: “We face some really tough challenges in our hospitals, particularly in relation to recruiting the specialist doctors and nurses we need to deliver high quality services for local patients. Working together gives us opportunities to learn from one another and to make the most of the staff and other resources we have in our local area. We really encourage local people to share their ideas with us through this survey.”
